    Emma’s Diner construction question

    The floor of the diner is a printed paper template. What glue would you recommend for fixing the paper to the base? I’m thinking Pritt rather than pva?

    Power Pritt Stick perhaps? Just for that added bit of security.
    I wonder what paper modellers use?

    This page suggests thinned PVA and has some interesting tips. I quite like the idea of smoothing it down with a sponge.

    Looks like thinned PVA is the way to go, it’s a good point re pritt yellowing and becoming brittle with age. Thanks for that.

    Hi dmwarmock

    Yes, thinned PVA is what we usually use. By applying it to the wood, not the paper, you have time to line up and move the paper piece to the correct spot. Pritt Stick is a great idea, should work really well, but whatever you do don't use Spray Mount. That will really mess up the paper, just like Super Glue would.
